In a new twist on nasty behavior, scammers are actively trying to trick the disabled and other supporters of the disabled community.
Unlike spam, which is annoying but usually harmless, this technique can lead to real problems to anyone caught in the scam.
So, if you get any email from the NCD looking for information, be highly suspicious.
Here is the official warning from the US based National Council on Disability: "Thanks to people in the community, NCD has become aware of a potential identify theft (phishing) scam that uses the NCD logo and other NCD information to solicit personal information and Social Security numbers, and suggests that NCD would pay for this information. This is not true, and responding to such an e-mail request from any party is a risk to the loss of personal assets and even your personal identity. This is a scam. NCD would never ask anyone for his or her Social Security number.
Please review the following valuable information from the Federal Trade Commission on how to avoid phishing scams and other schemes designed for personal identity theft. This section also advises how to register a complaint. Thank you."
